The new spikes look awful, the sl22's look garish even by adidas' standards!

Have to agree that the 2014 footwear doesn't look too great in stock images. Keen in picking up sl22 from this season somewhere even more now!

Middle of the season, picked up some e-bay bargains - a Libro and an Incurza, both Elite grades - 80 a piece. I was actually acquiring them for others at the club. However, having knocked in the Libro, used it in nets, etc, I ended up keeping it and scored four half centuries with it. The Incurza is a decent stick, slightly heavier in the pick up, they are similar weights 2.9 / 2.10, but the Libro picks up like a 2.7. The Incurza taps up very nicely and is the perfect weight and pick up for one of our guys (who smashed his bat last game of the season!) who'll get that opened up in indoor nets. Used both at a recent indoor net session at Cricket Asylum - I won't be parting with the Libro. Very impressed with the quality of the willow and the playing properties. They do have round, slightly thinner handles than some manufacturers, but as a "two and a half grips" man anyway, not a big issue.

The theory behind the coloured areas on the heel section is that when you have your whites on they are covered up just leaving the 3 stripes at the front of the boot and making them predominantly white. I was taken aback originally by them when you see them as a stand alone product but once worn with trousers the look becomes more sedate.

Smith wore a pair when scoring his double tonne the other week and must be 1 of the 1st players to use them i think, Carbs and the rest of the England lads are now using them too.
